First of all, I would like to say thank you to all my friends for the emails, tweets and messages that were sent to me after the Boston Marathon. I feel honored to have such great friends and people in my life. Yesterday's tragedy has left me speechless and full of mixed emotions. What started off as a blissful day turned into an eerie scene of horror.
In the midst of these emotions, I must say one thing, my experience at the Boston Marathon was nothing less than amazing. From the moment that the race began in Hopkinton to the end in Boylston Street, Boston's spectators were like no other. Their loyalty to the City of Champions was clearly reflected by their resonating energy. The sidewalks were filled with thousands of locals adorned with Boston Red Socks and Boston Celtics apparel. "Never give up!" yelled a group of women. "It's just a hill, get over it!" read one sign.
For me, Boston has re-defined what a true marathon should be. I feel honored to have run the Boston Marathon and I proudly say that "I was all in" on the most amazing day of my life. Despite the horror that occurred yesterday, Boston will once again prove to be The Cradle of Liberty. Boston revolutionized the US once and I have no doubt that it will do so again.
Stay tuned for my race report...
